Good Overall Surf Reel
July 12, 2016
Great reel for budget conscious beginning surf caster; appreciate the strength, casting ability and gear system which held up its own fighting rays and sharks throughout Atlantic coast, while providing enough sensitivity to reel in the smaller fish too. Looking forward to use the live bait option on my next trip~
ProsStrong Gear System Casting

Diawa Opp 5500 BRI opus plus bite and run reel
April 4, 2016
Just purchased the reel. At first impression looks like a solid reel Would use very little backing and it will hold 300 yards of 30 # Braid. I used 65# and got 250yards. Only spot of concern was mention on a review Before. At first glance it doesn't look like the foot on the real going into the reel seat is metal it looks like a very hard plastic or PVC material. Not sure how that will handle under heavy stress.
ProsVery nice reel for the price. Would recommend to others. Very comperable to the Shimano bait product
ConsThe foot that goes into the reel seat will need to be tested under a large fish. Does not look like its made of metal and one piece.

Affordable Bait Runner
February 24, 2016
I was looking for a reel with the baitrunner option for Hudson River Striper fishing. At $59.99 it is one of the cheapest reels with a baitrunner option i could find. So far so good!

Dont buy it for salt water!

The reel has a very weak plastic used for reel foot. If you catch a fish 20lb or above, the whole reel will flex at the reel foot. crap

Value for money
February 13, 2014
Today I received my my Daiwa OPP5500BRi Opus Plus Bite and Run Reel which I bought it from TackleDirect and directly in the same day I went to use it, This is by far my favorite surf reel I use with my 15ft rod. This reel is smooth. The bite and run works great. Only downfall is the weight of the reel, other then that there is absolutely no complaint about this reel
ProsPerforms well and value for money
ConsHeavy weight reel

good reel with tons of drag, only down side is the minor flex in the reel seat but that doesn't bother me. really wish there was a braid spool for this one.
Prosgood value, good capacity, awesome drag.
Conscan use a braid spool, can use some reinforcement to the reel foot and stalk, minor play in the spool.

reel foot problem
March 23, 2013
purchased the 4000 size for inshore saltwater fishing.I installed it on a star steller lite 7 foot 10-20 lb line rating rod. The reel foot is so thin it is moving inside the reel seat.I do not want to go any lighter on the rod because it won't match properly.My only option is to install some tape or other material to tighten it up,something i do not want to do after spending 215 dollars.
Prosperfect line lay,good drag,light weight.
Consreel foot moving inside reel seat.body of reel feels like cheap plastic.Daiwa calls it composite.

from Long Island, New York asked:
August 22, 2012
Is this reel the replacement to the Sealine Black BRi? If so is it a better reel overall?
Yes they are. Specs wise they look to be much improved but they are not out yet so I haven't gotten to see them.
